Very beautiful. Wish I could give it a 4.5.
"Our family of 3 just returned from 4 nights at this beautiful condo and I will start by saying we will rent it again in a heartbeat. It was wonderful but it came with a couple of negatives, (mostly worth mentioning because at almost $400/night, I feel like I need to mention them).
The location is perfection. Within walking distance to a beautiful beach, 10 minutes to downtown MA, 10 minutes to Quepos. We've been visiting MA for 10 years and love this location. The view from the condo was amazing.
The condo was so large, well appointed and better than the pictures. We didn't need a single thing. The pool was wonderful, the restaurant food was good and it was nice to have that restaurant on site. The staff was very friendly. We even had a monkey visit at breakfast to steal our sugar off the table in the restaurant. So fun.
Willy was nice. He was very quiet and did his job by basically just dropping off the keys to us and showing us around very quickly. He requested we come early to check in because he had something to do in the afternoon. That was fine with us!
The AC in the main living room broke within 3 hours of our arrival. It was heavily dripping water all over. I had texted Willy to alert him. He responded and said he would be there at 4:30pm. At 5:40 he hadn't arrived so I just text him a picture so he could see it soaked through 2 towels and asked him what to do. He then came over and turned off the unit, said someone would come the next day while we were out. That never happened but he called and said someone would be there the next day after. We declined because we wanted to relax in the condo without workers there. The ACs in the master and 2nd bedroom were also not working but we're not leaking. They just blew warm air.
Thankfully, it never got to the point where it felt very hot and we were fine but I felt like I was bothering the property manager by bringing it to his attention.
The relationship between the hotel and these condos seems odd. The hotel guests get breakfast included in their (cheaper) rate but it's $12 per person for the condo renters which is odd to me. The food was overpriced in general but that seems to be common now in MA. The hotel spa was an awful experience and I don't recommend the services there. I cannot fault the condo owner for this of course but if you plan to have a spa day, check out another spa.
Thankful to have found this place but just had a couple bumps!"

"This house is fantastic! its really spacious with the 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and new. The pool was great. The kitchen had everything you needed including all the little things that you don't normally get with a typical house rental. Our white water rafting, zip lining, 4 wheeling with a waterfall jump/ swim and mangrove monkey tours were just the best! I would 100% recommend hiring Tony, the maintenance guy, to do some driving, local guiding and provisioning/errand running for you. Tony's help was invaluable and he saved us money by getting locals pricing on the tours as well. Not to mention, we cried from laughing so hard from his stories. The house is a super home base from which you can create some awesome memories."

"Dear Ken and Kim, thank you so much for allowing us into your home, Casa Pura Paz is named perfectly. These 5 days Betsy and I spent with you were absolutely the most relaxing least stressful days for us in year's. For anyone considering visiting the Manuel Antonio area, I would strongly recommend
Pura Paz! Every aspect of my visit exceeded expectations. The house was exactly as it looked online, except it looks 10 times better in person. You can be as active as you want to be or just stare at the view off the deck all day. The national park is a great outing, but you will see all the wildlife right off the porch!The scenery of the surrounding area is nothing short of spectacular, there are too many outstanding restaurants to name and all of them are minutes from the house. One of the many highlights of our visit was the day trip with Jose, having a casual lunch on his farm provided a real glimpse into the culture of Costa Rica. We will be repeat visitors!
Thank you again.
